Joseph Martin has held a career unmatched in Canadian politics. He left his birthplace In Milton Ont, when a jouns boy and before he was out of his teens he was a tele graph operator in the United States. iThen came the panic o' 1873 and he (returned to Canada .to become sac- 'cessively a schboV teacher, a lawyer, !and a professional politician.

The northland Is filled with stories Of Jim Cornwall- In Edmonton, whether at the club or. some half- breed hang-out you may hear how he awain down the river half the night one autumn pulling behind him an upturned canoe on which lay a helpleas comrade. And after that you may hear he carried medi- cine and sick room dainties hundreds of miles into the camps of the Crees to help along some stricken Hia -diary of action, crammed as it IB Into perhaps two score years and five, touches nearly every country on the globo and most divisions of so- ciety. When quite a lad he peddled newspapers along the dockfronts ol Buffalo, breathed ih the wino ol stevedore politics and allied himself when scarcely twenty to the fortunes of "Flngy" .Connora. He sailed the lakes until the' restrictions of the deck jaded him, then took to adven- turing, on the States like some Don Quixote, invcs tigating cltlea and men for the satis- faction of James Cornwall. When General Coxey jumped up Sifs mighty legion of ragamuffins, Jim enlisted by aido with tho gen- eral to Washington and did the story for half a dozen newspapers, was after the Coxey episode that ho took to tho-sea and worked before the mast, quitting that for ther camp Senator Stepherison lives on a farm' at Marinette.

Our smelters are not anchored in one spot for eternity. They are movable." The rate changed without great de- lay. "Perhaps such wrongful practices as brought the muck rake into our national life were phases of our com- mercial says Mr. Gug- genheim.. "I. don't know. If they were phases they were siisareaiy bad ones and we want no more of them." And then was broached the matter of government or public gulation. "Inevitable, and Justly says he.

There you have a lew contrasts contained in the career and the per- sonality of Mr. "William Frank Sum- who since Mr- Jnwood's departure to take the managership of a mutual benefit society, has had-the fortunes and misfortunes of tho Lib- eral party organization in Ontario hruat upon his own back. But Sir. Summerhayes Is an old campaigner. "When we win, it is credited to tha said he. "When we lose, t la blamed on lack of organization. That has been my experience In forty- six years of politics." Mr. Summcrhayes is a native of Wlmbleton, England, tho home of ten- nis, and tho place where the annual championships arc held which rank as the chief tennis eventa of the world. Ho remembers when the very first championship games were played at Wimbleton. At the age of 18 he en- tered Into Politics and ten- nia were his bents. At the'age of 21 he made his first public apeech. Ho seconded a candidate's nomination at in open meeting in Wimbleton in a fifteen-minute maiden effort. Some notables were "on the platform, In- cluding Sir Henry Peck, the chair- man; Sir Joseph Bagaigcttc, and Mr. L M. Ford, tile engineer who laid the English Atlantic cable. For the next twenty years Mr, Summcrhayes was active In every political campaign that came along.
